This may be the end of Burundi’s diplomatic isolation. The new government has made a commitment to renewing new ties with other states, with a view to turning the page on the reign of the late President Pierre Nkurunziza.

It is a new diplomatic start for Burundi, during a meeting with the representatives of the United Nations in Bujumbura, the capital of the country, Albert Shingiro, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Development Cooperation announced that “it is the moment to open up to the world and to partners ”.

For him, the government is continuing negotiations with diplomats and potential partners with a view to lifting certain sanctions imposed on Burundi during the reign of Pierre Nkurunziza. “We believe that the sanctions taken against Burundi will be lifted in the coming months. It is the will shared with the partners that I have already met. The time to normalize diplomatic relations with the traditional partners of Burundi has arrived “, specifying that” all the partners contacted, European or African who have taken sanctions against Burundi are ready to lift them “, he told the press after their exchange.

According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Development Cooperation, the Ndayishimiye regime is focusing all of its attention on opening up its country on the international scene. “You know what happened. Now we are going to put a lot of effort into it, you are going to see a change in the next few days. All citizens will see a difference. Your sincerity and good faith could contribute to the withdrawal of Burundi from the agenda of the United Nations Security Council and the lifting of the sanctions unjustly imposed on Burundi ”.

Since 2016 the European Union has decided to suspend its aid estimated at more than 400 million euros. A sanction aimed at putting pressure on the late Pierre Nkurunziza, who had just run for a third and final term. Other partners of Burundi, including France, Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands had, in turn, decided to freeze the assets of personalities close to the old regime.
